Given the many scientific disciplines that come together in this field, one may need to look into various sources of information to cover all aspects. Several textbooks give comprehensive overviews of the field, including Wallace 2008, Rosenstock, et al. 2005, Rom 2007, LaDou 2007, and Levy et al. 2006. Each of these multiauthored texts takes on the wide scope of the field with sometimes differing assessments of the same potential hazards.
